No Other Love Digital Cover 1000 72

MEMPHIS WORSHIP LEADER JEREMY HORN RELEASES
NO OTHER LOVE ON ARDENT RECORDS NOVEMBER 12


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Memphis, TN. November 12, 2013… Long-time worship leader and Memphis native Jeremy Horn releases his third full-length album, No Other Love, through Ardent Records now available digitally on Amazon mp3, Itunes, and other digital service providers and also on cd from the Ardent Records web store (ardentrecords.com/store).

From the infectious intro of “Awake” to the finale’s intimate outro of his own rendition of the cherished hymn, “I Surrender All”, Horn’s self-produced project is his best to date. The 11 track set features songs co-written with songwriting heavyweights Matt Armstrong, Rusty Varenkamp, Stuart Garrard, among others. The record also includes the powerful “I Stand Amazed”, capturing the essence of the album’s message, while “Your Glory Is My Fire” features Horn and Josh Maze (worship pastor of Memphis’ Highpoint Church) on writing duties, as one of many standout tracks.

Recorded live with a responsive audience, No Other Love captures Horn’s passion and conviction through every song, and his love for the Savior. Each layer of soaring guitars, signature melodies, and reverent lyrics: “I am weak but You are able / I have failed but You are faithful / Jesus You are holding on to me” and “King of Heaven in Earth who is like You? / God of unending worth / Who is like You?/ In mercy rain upon us” testify that his mission to “create singable and playable songs for the church” has been accomplished.

Leading worship has been an integral part of Horn since he was fifteen years old and his zeal to serve with his musical gifts soon led to his role as the head worship pastor at Christ the Rock Church in Memphis, serving a church family who consistently supports his calling in ministry. No Other Love is an engaging, Spirit-led experience of the Hope and Love that he has always known and represents a true reflection of his own heart towards Christ, his family, the church, and the world.

Skillet’s Awake Certified Platinum

Skillet’s Awake Certified Platinum; Only Active Rock Band to Go Platinum in 2012; Skillet Join Mumford & Sons and Black Keys as Only 3 Rock Bands to Go Platinum in 2012; Grammy Nominees Skillet Currently Recording Follow-Up With Producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Motorhead, All American Rejects); Album Due Spring 2013

Talk about starting the year on a high note: two-time Grammy®-nominated rock band SKILLET were in the studio putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated new album when they received the great news that their most recent release, Awake (Atlantic/Ardent/INO), has just been certified platinum for sales in excess of one million copies in the US. It’s worth noting that Skillet was the only active rock band to achieve platinum certification in 2012, and were one of only three rock bands (the other two being Mumford & Sons and the Black Keys) to strike platinum in 2012. “We are so proud of Skillet for this crowning achievement,” stated Craig Kallman, Chairman/CEO of Atlantic Records and Julie Greenwald, Chairman/COO of Atlantic Records. “The band is hard at work finishing up their incredible new album which we can’t wait for the world to hear this Spring.”

Skillet (singer/bassist John Cooper, guitarist/keyboardist Korey Cooper, drummer Jen Ledger and guitarist Seth Morrison) is recording in Los Angeles, where they’ve re-teamed with producer Howard Benson (Motorhead, My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects), who helmed 2009′s Awake.

Giving a bit of a sneak peek into what the record will sound like, lead vocalist John Cooper says that “Musically, this record feels like a roller coaster ride. Several tracks are aggressive with dirtier and edgier guitars. Korey’s keyboards are extremely unique and Jen’s great vocals are showcased throughout the album. There are some powerful anthems and the ‘signature Skillet’ songs our fans tend to love: symphonic, classical rock duets.”

Awake was a blockbuster release for Skillet, debuting at No. 2 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Album Chart and No. 1 on the magazine’s Top Modern Rock/Alternative Albums Chart. In addition, the record hit No. 1 on iTunes‘ Top Album Chart, garnered 3 Billboard Music Awards and spawned four hit singles including the No. 1 Active Rock smash and gold-certified “Awake & Alive,” the gold-certified “Hero,” “It’s Not Me It’s You” and the platinum-certified “Monster.” “Monster” lived up to its name, selling more than a million copies and hitting Top 5 at Active Rock radio, while its companion video has generated over 47 million YouTube views. The hook-happy “Hero” was featured in season-long spots for NBC’s NFL Sunday Night Football and served as the official theme song for WWE’s Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View. The band toured endlessly in support, playing to sold-out crowds across the country, which earned them a spot on Pollstar’s Concert Pulse Chart of the Top 50 Tours for fall of 2010. Awake followed the band’s 2006′s gold-selling album, Comatose.

In other words, it was business as usual for the quartet, who over the course of the past few years have sold more than two million units in the U.S. alone, racked up more than 150 million YouTube views and amassed a diehard following (dubbed Panheads) whose members number in the millions.

Todd Agnew – Wednesdays in the Word

Todd Agnew will be conducting a study on Romans featured on FreeCCM.com’s “Wednesdays in the Word”! Here’s an introduction about the study from Todd himself!

Hey everyone, this is Todd Agnew!

I want to welcome you to our summer series on Romans here at FreeCCM.com’s Wednesday in the Word. The worship staff in my church is walking through Romans this summer and I thought I would blog along with our study so you can participate as well. Romans is a huge theological undertaking but we’ll take it at a pace and a level that everyone should be able to participate. We won’t cover every bit of it, just hitting some highlights, but we’d love to hear your thoughts on any of it.

Paul had always wanted to go to Rome. He was integral in seeing the beginning of the Church in much of his part of the world, but in the one place he wanted to go, the Church was growing without him. So Paul weighs in with the most theologically weighty letter in the New Testament.

In approximately the same time period, the Roman philosopher Cicero’s letters averaged 295 words, while Seneca’s letters averaged 995 words. Paul’s letters were a little longer, averaging 1300 words. Romans has about 7,100 words. So obviously Paul is heavily invested here both in length and in content.

We’ll just be drinking from a Dixie cup out of a theological ocean, but hopefully it will push you to do some studying of your own. There is a vast wealth of truth for Christians found in this letter, and we will get a taste of it in this blog series. I welcome your comments, and look forward to studying alongside you.

Seek first the kingdom,

Todd Agnew
